Why your views matter

We all know the pandemic has hit young people in Greater Manchester far worse than other areas. Young people aged 16-24 are significantly more likely to be unemployed than other age groups and traditionally bear the brunt of economic shocks.

Connecting to GM’s business community will enable us to give our young people a line of sight to their future and realise their potential - and that’s where you come in.

What happens next

We will be in contact to discuss your pledges with you futher. We will also share the pledges made across social media on @YourGMACS using #GMCAPledge5.

    Are you a business in Greater Manchester interested in creating opportunities for young people? Are you already providing workplace opportunities for young people but interested in learning how you can do more?

    Join us for our virtual event where you will be able to understand the challenges facing young people, hear how you can get involved and pledge your support. You’ll hear directly from the city-region’s leaders as well as a number of GM’s biggest employers outlining how.
